Walk-through of the new non-destructive Android KitKat photo editor


Every smartphone has a camera in it these days. That camera may be great, or it may be mediocre — sometimes it might even be laughable. What happens once you get the pictures on your smartphone? Most of the time they just sit there. Now, thanks to the new Android 4.4 KitKat photo editor, your pictures not only look good, you can do all kinds of cool stuff with them.

Let’s take a look at a couple of less-than-perfect pictures, and see how to turn them into something amazing.

KitKat Photo Editor

Nicolas Roard and his team have been working on the new AOSP Android KitKat Gallery app for months. The new version adds powerful image manipulation tools to correct and enhance pictures right on your device.

In addition to supporting full-size image processing (regardless of how many megapixels your camera packs in) you’ll also get zooming, image straightening, graduated filters, per-channel saturation controls, and much more!

Give it a try! Open up your worst image and start seeing what you can do to make is beautiful!
